That's how I describe yesterday afternoon's SAGBUTT get-together. The August gathering of the Seattle Area Garden Bloggers United to Talk was hosted by Molly of Life on Tiger Mountain.
We started off with a tour of the gardens. Along the way we got to meet the chickens and ducks.
This made me stop in my tracks--pumpkin envy hit hard.
Keeping the pumpkins company were borlotti beans. This past week Wing Nut had made us a borlotti bean and fennel salad for dinner. We hadn't tried borlotti beans before and of course ours came from a can. So we were thrilled to see them growing in Molly's garden.
Molly is a great storyteller and I loved hearing her tell us about the history of the property--very colorful.
While in the woods, Wing Nut thought she saw Sasquatch.
But it was only Diva Dog---and Wing Nut having issues with the camera settings. Diva Dog enjoyed the visit as much as we did. She was in heaven as she explored the woods and the stream. And Molly's dog, the Awesome Aussie, even got Diva Dog to play--no easy feat.
After the garden tour, we returned to the house where a tomato tasting awaited on the balcony. There was much in the way of good conversation, delicious food, elderberry beverages, and exchanges of plants, seeds, and fruit. We even left with today's breakfast.
Fresh eggs taste amazing.
